Darlin Lithium Project, Quebec

Afzaal Pirzada, M.Sc.(Geology), P.Geo., is a consultant to Medaro Mining and a Qualified Person, as defined by NI 43-101. Mr. Pirzada has approved of the disclosure set out below.


  • Medaro has secured an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Darlin property which consists of 37 mining claims covering approximately 2,133 hectares, located in Darlin and Chabert townships, 80 kilometers southwest of the town of Val-d’Or, Quebec. 
  • The Darlin property is in close proximity to Medaro’s Rapide property offering similar geologies and proximities to other active lithium and molybdenum prospects/mines in the Abitibi region. 
  • In September 2022, Medaro started a detailed prospecting, mapping, and sampling program which included select areas for a soil sampling program and ground magnetic / VLF geophysical surveys. A 1,500 metres diamond drill program will commence in November 2022 which has been contracted to Diafor Drilling of Quebec.

  • The Property is located in a very active hard rock lithium pegmatite area. There are several historical and currently active lithium and molybdenum prospects/mines in the Abitibi region (Figure 1). Some of the important prospects/mines are: North American Lithium which was formerly owned by RB Energy, Authier Lithium owned by Sayona Mining of Australia, Valor Lithium, and Tansim Lithium project of Sayona. All these projects / prospects are at various stages of exploration and development, out of which Mine Quebec Lithium is the most advanced project followed by Authier lithium project.
  • Geologically, the property is underlain by consolidated rocks of Precambrian in age. The oldest, made up of altered sedimentary with some volcanic types, are included in the Pontiac group. These have been intruded by, and mixed with, the granitic and syenitic rocks that underlie much the greater part of the area. Pegmatites and aplites are the youngest of the acidic types. Dykes of diabase and gabbro cut all other rocks in the area.
  • Pegmatites and associated aplites of diverse textures are extremely abundant in the area. Not only do they form dykes and sills in the schists of the Pontiac group and in the syenitic rocks but they also, crop out over areas with the dimensions of stocks. The largest mass is 6 miles in diameter, centred south of Rapid 2, large tongue-like extensions of this pegmatite mass trend northeast to. Dardens river and beyond: and southwest to Clérion lake, making a zone 6 to 7 miles wide and over 15 miles long in which pegmatite and pegmatitic granite are the predominant rocks. The large pegmatite masses are essentially homogeneous. Locally aggregates of larger crystals of some minerals form small irregular masses in the larger masses. Some of the smaller lenses and dykes are zoned.
  • Mineralization and geology as described by Boily (MB 89-29 is provided below:
    • 31M15-1 (Be) – It is a showing of Be (beryllium) located about 900 m ENE of Lake Caron in the canton of Cairo. These are granite pegmatite (feldspar-K, perthite, quartz, muscovite and biotite) traversed by a very complex network of canker sore veins. We noted several enclaves of monzodiorite and biotite shale, however no beryl crystals were observed. The aplite is quite homogeneous and contains muscovite, feldspar-K, quartz and garnet, the latter having a characteristic ribboning near the surrounding rock (a biotite shale?).
    • 31M/15-2a and b (Be) – This showing, located in the Township of Darlens about 1 km east of the Ottawa River, can only be reached via the Rapide Deux-Cadillac road and a network of logging roads. One of the outcrops (31 M/15-2a, 10 m x 5 m) contains zoned granite pegmatites  (feldspar-K, perthite, quartz, muscovite and biotite) with coarse grains, several areas  of which are delimited by bands rich in garnet and/or  in muscovite. The  surrounding rock is a foliated monzodiorite with biotite and hornblende that contains enclaves of hornblendite. 
    • Another outcrop is located about 100 m at the SE (31 M/15-2b). Beryl (1 to 2E) is found in a quartz  vein (100’/65′) bounded by a feldspar K-rich zone and a garnetiferous aplite border  that  also contains some beryl crystals. The vein shows a clear contact with the cashing monzodiorite, but this is much more diffuse with the other pegmatites found in this outcrop. Pegmatites  sometimes contain sillimanite beaches and some columbite-tantalite crystals.

2022 Exploration Work

  • In September 2022, Medaro Mining has started a detailed prospecting, mapping and sampling program. A few areas are selected for soil sampling program and ground magnetic / VLF geophysical surveys. A 1,500 metres diamond drill program will commence in November 2022 which is contracted to Diafor Drilling of Quebc. The Company is preparing access trails for starting drilling as soon as possible.

  • A Phase 2 exploration program if required can include further trenching and diamond drilling to test high priority targets of Phase 1.
